Kalakshetra's postponed fest from January 26; Chennai

Kalakshetra Foundation had to postpone its annual December season-time fest because its auditorium was damaged by cyclone Vardah that hit Chennai city in early December.

Now, Kalakshetra's re-schedued  64th Annual Art Festival will open on Republic Day on its campus.

It will feature four of Kalashetra's own celebrated dance-dramas originally produced by its late founder Rukmini Devi.

Tickets will be available from 11th December 2016 at Kalakshetra Foundation​ (10am to 5pm)​. They can be booked in advance.

Kalakshetra Foundation staff will also offer its exclusive Heritage Walks on each morning of the festival at 8:30am.

All are welcome
